    Windshields are tough. Just did one on a Cessna kit. Second hand kit and for some reason he didnt have the glass.

    Yeah, but I built the full size wing so I can crash it slower.

    I was having trouble finding materiel for it. Ended up going to Hobby Lobby.

    Still have one broken window to replace, but it will be easy. Could probably have the plane flying again in a couple days if I stayed on it but gonna stretch it out for a couple more weeks I think. Mostly painting, covering, and gluing hinges.

    Yep, good plan. Never rush.

    RC flying lesson (passed down)...

    When your sittin on the runway getting ready to advance the throttle and take off, ask yourself, "Would I be willing to sit in that and take off?"

    If the answer is no then pull back in and fix it.

    Younggun, I built a Carl Goldberg model of a J3 Cub roughly 30 years ago that’s the spitting image of your plane. It flew like a champ despite some misaligned tail feathers from parts that shifted while the glue was curing.

    I’m gonna finish recovering and attaching the windscreen one of these days and get mine back in the air.
